    "Settings" can be learnt easily, I think what you need to work on is your composition. Don't raise your camera to shoot random things without first giving it a thought, be clear about what you want to shoot.

    For example, the 2nd picture. Perhaps what you wanted were the trees, that's fine.

    Ask yourself these.

    Is that the best position to shoot the tree from? Nope? Time to move.

    Super bright street lamps? Surely you can leave them out of the frame, they'll only mess up your exposure if you don't know what you want to achieve with them.

    Bus in the way? Wait for it to move out of your frame.

    Railings unsightly? Perhaps you can go over to the side, or lean against it to leave it out of your frame.

    #3 and #4: when you put a very bright object next to not very bright object, you are going to have to choose which one to expose correctly for. In the case of #4, I think it's quite good lighting for the face of the Fortune God, but the bright lights around it just detracts all the attention away. Similar with #3, the blinding bright lights just takes all the attention.

    One way of working around this is to do PP. You can bring out the shadows and highlights of a picture and balance things out. Hope that helps.

    The Canon 7D's colours, noise control and potential details is impressive. Keep practicing.

    Meanwhile, keep the critics comin
    Photoholic, yes your photographs leave a certain amount to be desired.
    But your humility, and your equanimity displayed in response to adversities, is most admirable.
    I salute you, newbie. Keep your photos coming.

    Composition and exposure are key parts of a photo.

    So consider honing your skills in daytime shots at the start, where you need not lug around a tripod, leaving you to focus on the basics. Generally speaking, it is harder to go wrong, exposure-wise for day shots than night.

    Then slowly built up your skills from there.

    Dun say I neber warn you bro' !!!!!



    ***************************************

    p.s. Seriously speaking I prefer the straightforward way, which is C&Cs rather than coop up and wondering what is wrong, how to improve, what mistake being make ...etc....etc....To me it's the only way to improve. Having said... I will try during daytime ( as suggested by fellow forummer ) untill I get a tripod, of course
    And the C&Cs ??? These are constructive comments, I had worse. So dun worry

    Before you upload your photos for critique, it is also better to engage in self critique first.

    Many of those who started out simply dump a lot of photos and expect people to help them along. On your part, I would suggest selecting just a few of those which you think are your "best" efforts for uploading and comments.
